Despite South Korea’s prohibition on abortion, some 350,000 abortions still take place annually. Now a group of obstetricians is working to enforce the law, even if the former abortionists among their membership must implicate themselves in their own illegal acts. The number of abortions in South Korea is only 100,000 fewer than the 450,000 babies usually born each year.
The Korean group of obstetricians called Gynob has launched a movement against abortion, Joon Ang Daily reports. Their spokeswoman, practicing obstetrician Choi Anna, said she intends to advocate against abortion until the practice is entirely wiped out though she has reportedly received death threats from other private obstetricians who say her activities are bad for business.
“Our group has made it clear that we as obstetricians won’t rely on abortion for a living anymore,” Anna said.
The 43-year-old Anna admits to having once profited from abortions at her hospital. She told the Joon Ang Daily that Korean society’s tacit consent to abortion has prompted many obstetricians to secretly provide the procedure.
“The country is now suffering from a low birthrate,” Anna said, attributing it to a past population control policy that encouraged abortion. “The government seems to be reluctant now to clamp down. But we believe when doctors halt abortions, births could increase by more than 100,000 in one to two years.
“If this movement becomes successful, obstetricians won’t have to provide abortions for a living,” she added.

When the doctors refuse to perform abortion, the supply-side of the question solves the problem of abortion.
That’s why governments today — the thugs that they are — are trying to trample on conscience rights and force doctors to perform them.
Abortion is being assailed on all sides. It’s just a matter of time before the whole thing collapses.
